I’ve just had a quick look at the BBC news site.
It seems a mosque in Quebec has been attacked.
With six killed, and eight injured.
I think however tempting violence might be at times?
Attacking a mosque to show your support for Donald Trump’s travel ban?

On a more personal note?
I’ve managed to have a look at my kid sister’s laptop: as it’s been having problems.
And think I’ve worked out what the issue is.
It’s a cheap PC …
With a dead battery …
I think she needs a new one …

* I think that’s always the way, Olga, when it comes down to regiments: I’ve got the impression you won’t get thanked for mentioning the Paras in parts of Belfast. I’ll have to keep an eye peeled when that books goes past, Olga: sounds like fine! (Let me know the titles, Olga!)
